The Master of Science in Nanoengineering degree program is a research Master's degree, featuring coursework involving engineering at the nanoscale. It is designed for students with a strong background in engineering who seek additional, specialized training in order to find industrial or government positions in fields that utilize nanotechnology. Qualified applicants will have an engineering degree and as a minimum, will have completed mathematics courses through differential equations. The course of study is comprised of 12 hours of core courses that will introduce students to fundamental concepts, methods, and discoveries in different areas of Nanoengineering, 12 hours of foundation courses which build on the undergraduate engineering degree ensuring appropriate depth of knowledge in the student’s discipline. Appropriate courses will be selected with a student’s program advisor. These graduate level courses will come from offerings at both North Carolina A&T State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; and 6 hours of thesis or 3 hours of project (in case of project option, student will be required to take 30 credit hours of course work – 12 credit hours of core courses, 18 credit hours of disciplinary foundation courses).
